I have successfully avoided getting sick all winter until now. Despite all my efforts, a cold blossomed as the day progressed. I can't get sick right now - I don't have the time. I might be able to squeeze in a day or two in July, but until then, getting sick is out of the question. Needless to say, I'm fucked.

 

Having just now come through my third this season, you totally have my condolences...

Thank you. Last night I had the most odd, vivid dreams and kept waking up every two hours or so.

 

By 12:30pm I was a mess - staring at my computer screen just lost so I came home and crawled into bed. I have a 10 am meeting tomorrow that I cannot miss. Plus we hosting lunch for 6 on Saturday. I'm not a happy camper.

 

the cold i had this weekend knocked me out -- the first night i had unbearable chills and after they stabilized i woke up every 45 minutes or so with awful dreams (i was investing in TALF and overlevered) -- i have never been so dispirited to see the clock at only 12:30 am. i was lucid but torpid on day two, and day three i was living in a diving bell but otherwise ok. i'm completely back now, though i should just sign over my next paycheck to kleenex.

you know, a snot rag made from recycled sheets or towels is a more green solution. don't you want the cutlet to grow up in a world with trees?

a tree grows in brooklyn. but maybe it is a kleenex tree.

I went to the DMV to get a learners permit this morning. That was the first annoyance: that although my UK license is perfectly OK for driving in the US (as long as I’m not a resident), it is not suff

My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

You know, you people all need to get a dog.

 

Historically, by this time in the season, I've usually been really, really sick at least four or five times.

 

Since I got the Doctor back in September I haven't been sick one single day.

 

Get yourself a dog, and name him 'Doctor'. He'll keep you healthy.

If I see one more news story on that rogue chimpanzee, I'll go absolutely crazy-mad-crazy. I want it to stop.

 

I want peace and quiet, time to ponder the great mysteries of the world. Like why are there all these belly fat commercials on tv? Or what is up with Joanne Weir and her hair?

 

Or why the ELO lyric, "You're lookin good just like a snake in the grass, one of these days youre gonna break your glass."?

I use it to keep Mongo away. It has the same effect as a crucifix on Dracula.

What is up with Joanne Weir in general (though her hair really is something else altogether)?

 

I seem to remember liking her early shows, but this latest 'teaching' series bugs the hell out of me. Her mien has completely changed, and now she acts as though she personally invented every cooking technique there is, from toasting pine nuts to chopping parsley to sauteing onions. Is it just me, or does she seem incredibly condescending these days?

You hit the nail on the head. Besides being tediously elementary, there is an annoying side bar where she describes parts of the session with a student. Yes, incredibly condescending. One poor victim was butterflying a boned leg of lamb, trying to follow her (for once) less-than-explicit instructions. Then she talked about what a terrible job he did.

 

That was when I decided that I didn't like her hair.

I subscribed to a CBC bulletin list, so am sent a daily bulletin plus special e-mails when major new events happen. Usually there are only one or two of these special ones per week. But today I have received at least six so far, all Obama related. Obama landed and met Michaëlle, Obama is at Parliament Hill, Obama and Stephen smiled at each other, Obama said something witty, Obama stubbed his toe (okay haven't seen that one yet but it's probably on the way). Just got another one as I was typing this. He is here for six hours, people. Don't e-mail all of these soundbites, just sum it up on the news tonight...

 

By some horrible oversight the CBC did NOT send out the lunch menu in a bulletin, but here it is anyway:

 

Pacific Coast Tuna with a Chilli and Citrus Vinaigrette

Maple and Miso Cured Nunavut Arctic Char

Lightly Pickled Vegetables and an Organic Beet Relish

Applewood Smoked Plains Bison

Winter Root Veg and Local Mushrooms

Cauliflower and Rosemary Puree

Juniper and Niagara Red Wine Jus

 

Dessert:

Saugeen Yogurt Pot de Creme with a Lemon and Lavender Syrup

Wild Blueberry and Partridgeberry Compote

Acadian Buckwheat Honey and Sumac Tuile.
